AB creates advisory board to guide skills development, postsecondary needs

The Government of Alberta has named an 11-member advisory board that will focus on the alignment between AB postsecondary programming and the needs of high-demand sectors. The Calgary Herald reports that the group will report to AB Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides, and their feedback will inform government policy. “We must look ahead to the Alberta of the future and ensure that graduates enter the workforce with the training and skills that are relevant,” said AB Premier Jason Kenney. According to RD News Now, NDP Labour Critic Christina Gray noted that the council includes many essential voices, but is “noticeably light on representatives from Alberta’s post-secondary institutions.” Calgary Herald| RD News Now| CTV News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
